Highway 34 construction update

Email News Alerts

Traffic congestion in Park Rapids around July 4th serves as a reminder of why a wider Highway 34 through the city will bring relief.

The two-year reconstruction project began in May with weekly contractors' meetings to inform the public about what's coming up.


For awhile, underground utility work in the vicinity of Riverside Avenue was going to require water to be turned off on the entire east side of the city.

That won't happen.
